These piccies are just so good...and heroes asleep are gorgeous.
I've always thought that when that rather nice computer expert does, eventually, fall asleep, its usually restless. And he does look that way in your piccie atomicmayo...not at peace with himself.
And my I say just how brilliant your work is. I passed my 'O' level art, but there is no way that I could emulate you. Mr Lowry with his matchstick men perhaps...no, not even that.
Cold.....you don't know the meaning of cold.
Cold is when you have ice on the INSIDE of the window!!!

I never saw Avon as a character who would sleep peacefully!


I agree, actually - with one exception. It was something I tried to bring across by him being almost completely covered by the blanket and keeping his limbs for the most part... contained? Kind of in contrast to the others. I was going for what Travisina and littlesue mentioned with him actually looking kind of tense or restless in his sleep. Guess it wasn't so successfully brought across though - eh, live and learn.

There's a lot of headcanoning floating around tumblr about how Avon never really feels safe - the one time I think he would sleep well is if he ever really, truly felt safe. Otherwise yeah, lots of sleep trouble. It can be a fun idea to toy around with - I've drawn a couple comics with him and Vila that deal with it.

That's really sweet of you to say, but you should know but I'm a little envious of you - I don't have any formal education in art whatsoever! I feel like I'm constantly trying to catch up - or going back and learning basics that I probably should've learned about fifteen years ago. XD

Oh at atomic, I love all your drawings - should have made that clear. And looking more closely at your Avon drawing, I can see what you and everyone else sees in it and I unreservedly withdraw my comments. ( They really weren't intended as criticisms but probably came over as such). And if you're playing catch up with your art your talent is even more amazing than I suspected. I guess the fact that you don't have any history with the craft is why your work is so distinctive and original!
Just because I can't sing doesn't mean I won't.
 
atomicmayo
Oh no, it's cool - I didn't take it as criticism so much as feedback, and I really really like feedback. I'm glad you like my stuff as well. <3

What? Me? Formal education in art?
I just painted some splodges on a piece of paper; did some still life drawing (a vase and bowl of fruit, which we were able to do over a number of weeks) and the powers that be deemed it good enough to let me pass my 'O' level. This was back in the very late 60s, so I expect that they took pity on me Grin

As it's the new year and I'm trying to make myself draw more often, I have been taking a lot of requests from drawing challenges on tumblr. I've already done quite a few B7 requests on there already, but I thought I'd open up requests on here, too. Is there anything people would like me to draw?

I can post a challenge on here as well if people want to request something but aren't sure what they want. For that, basically I give you a list of numbered prompts, and you'd PM me with a character/pairing/scene/whatever and the number of the prompt you want to see.

Let me know if you're interested!

Your request really sounds like fun, and a challenge at the same time, atomicmayo. I certainly would love to see a sort of triangle of Avon, Del Grant and Anna Grant. I've always thought those three characters had quite a back story but I never have been good at drawing, so it never came to fruition. If you have not drawn these three together before, how about that?

atomicmayo
Thanks - BradPaula - I'll get to your drawing in the next day or two. I already have an idea in my head for it. Smile

Step right up if you have any other requests, folks - I find I'm more motivated if I have a list of stuff to draw!

Hi atomicmayo,

What a great idea, I love your artwork!

Please could you provide an illustration for one of my ficlets - 'Partners in Crime'? It's on page 5 of the May ficlet challenge -

http://www.blakes...owstart=80

I was thinking of developing it into a longer story and your artwork could provide further inspiration! Smile

I'd like a drawing of Bayban the Butcher struggling to restrain Mother, his giant tiger-sized pet lizard, while she strains against the chain he is hauling on, please - if that's not too much of a tall order.

I'm experimenting with whether I can convert someone's something and I'm wondering whether we could add graphics to it too.

I would love to see any artwork involving Avon.....!!! Smile

Tarrant me thinks, well I would say that wouldn't I?! But silliness aside, a nice drawing of Del and Deeta together would be fab. Cheers Grin

*Any* artwork with Avon, eh? Well, last night I had artist block on all the other billion things I should be working on, and when I have artist's block I find it helps to doodle my favorite characters as memes. Ever seen knife cat? Dare to compare!

i love your style. I don't know who 'knife cat' is but you've captured Avon's inner smugness perfectly Smile
 
Lurena
Hi atomicmayo! I love your drawing! Very well captured Avon's character and it made me smile! Please keep drawing, don't let the artist's block linger, it should not exist, your style can cheer up lots of people here!

It's a bit disturbing how happy the cat and Avon are to be threatened by a huge knife! The cat I can understand as it won't be able to guess the danger of the knife but Avon? Perhaps the smug smile is because he's protected by his own personal force field? Or does he enjoy being threatened? ( probably a no go area if we are to remain a child friendly site!)

Behave yourself, Anniew!

My interpretation of the picture is that Avon was about to re-enact Crocodile Dundee: That's not a knife!

Okay. On to the next one... Hopefully my turn-around will be a little faster this time!

That's fab, atomicmayo! I love the tension and mystery and intriguing background detail - where are they? What are they up to?
I have a feeling that's going to inspire a whole lot of new stories Smile
